across the city revelations of based on leaked documents hit a raw nerve in berlin that's been trying to get washington to explain its tapping of on the merkel's phone lied and said it doesn't comment on intelligence matters. from germany's pirate party says the country knew its allies were listening in. the german government of course didn't notice what was happening on the roof top of the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that big what's going on that . i think that the german interior secret service they're not allowed to investigate on the l a's and this is simply because germany right now is a subclass patna of the b. of the u.s. and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up the ladder in a face of the n.s.a.'s far reaching surveillance program hardly any tech company can now guarantee one hundred percent privacy but artie's marina pora i met the

what could be done to minimize the consequences of such disasters in the future. the intensity the energy in the storms in the pacific have gone up by fifty percent over the last thirty years or so and this is largely due to the warmer ocean wormer atmosphere so we're going to see more of these very severe storms so-called three four five category storms now in some cases when the communications systems are very active we can give good warning to other people in other cases when those are not there or not as robust it's very difficult for everybody to know that such a severe storm is coming so preparation is going to be absolutely essential and the countries are clearly going to have to make the kind of decisions about how they're close or populated in order to minimize the impact. later in the program we visit

government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract servant territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from home life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're allowed to you know there's the don't tell an open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and it ticky bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we

even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an costs here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here were now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time who's going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see

8:19 pm
be tried but it's comic that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the morsy trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases of remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but off the military ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsi hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown against the brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security

apparatus continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched in its own and france and its own interests. again and again the problem not that we need to sit down and agree on a specific transitional justice either we're turning everyone on meaningful shores we're taking the route to the south africa. and many many of the truth and you will see should that seems far away as pre-move protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is move trial will not deliver much did justice to egypt's brought this to this stage of the instability and ten more oil. russians are fond of saying everything's possible in russia apparently and also applies to neighboring or one motorist in the country got a real demonstration of horse power when he tried to cross this road.

thank goodness for dash cameras ever know what's going to happen out on the streets was. not a right royal welcome as the dutch king pelted with rotten tomatoes during a state visit to moscow by the outlawed national bolshevik party find out what got them so hot under the collar that are. the nuclear cleanup team of japan's fukushima nuclear plant readying for one of the most hazardous jobs yet trying to move the facilities fuel rods to a safer place procedure needed to stabilize the site crippled by an earthquake and tsunami two and a half years ago but moving a spent fuel from a pool inside one of the reactors presents serious risks and even a slight mishap could release a huge amount of radiation to the atmosphere a nuclear power expert arnold gundersen says given the risk neither fukushima operator tepco nor the japanese government should be trusted. it's very dangerous it's never been done before but it has to be done it's not like it can be avoided
8:22 pm
the risk of keeping nuclear fuel way up in the air on that fuel pool given the seismic problems of a building that's been exploded are too severe so it has to be moved they get them the problem will be that we've got tokyo electric moving in and there's not a lot of faith in this world for the tom put in city of tokyo electric there's no international oversight there and that's the problem it's tokyo is electric it's basically saying trust us when we have no bases to trust tokyo electric i think the japanese government is not telling its people the troops and what it really boils down to is that they're measuring the radiation with these radiation detectors in the air but they're not registering what these people are breathing in and the inhalation dose from the dust that's on the ground is not included in the japanese calculations so it's critical for these people to stay away stay away from these
